Knitting Typewriter

TK Mockup

Knitting Typewriter

The eTextiles Workspace group (Anja Hertenberger, Leonie Urff, Ricardo O Nascimento and Meg Grant) started their project "TK Series" as part of the V2_ Summer Sessions 2011. The project takes the form of a typewriter that produces knitting.

The idea evolved out of the idea behind Synesthesia, a neurological condition where different senses are "cross-wired". The group explored how several senses translate when rendered by different media.

The production process will be a challenge for the group as their expertise lies largely in electronics embedded in wearables and textiles. The TK Series project will rely heavily on mechanical movement of the knitting machine. The typewritten text will be translated into a two-tone pattern that can later be scanned to make a new translation into a different media.
